Tacoma News Tribune: Kingston boy inspires Lakewood officer

A Kingston boy and his mother found their way to the Lakewood Police Department Sunday to deliver a special gift, the Tacoma News Tribune reported.

The boy brought a small donation and his favorite toy dinosaur to give to the children of four recently slain Lakewood officers. Touched by the boy's generosity, an officer wrote the story into a letter, which was re-printed by the News Tribune.

"I hope he will realize someday how much more than a dollar and some change he gave to me and to the Lakewood Police Department today," the officer wrote.
